We continue our countdown of the 20 dumbest Oklahoma people, places and things today with numbers 15 - 11. It includes criminals, idiots, perverts and even idiot perverts who like to give incorrect information on television.
Did your favorite dumb thing make the list? Check it out below:
15. Commando Cartwheeling Teacher
Earlier this year, substitute teacher Lacey Sponsler did something very dumb and exposed her private parts to students while performing a rudimentary cartwheel. Here's the terrifying slow motion video in case you missed it:
Lacey received a two-year suspended sentence, nearly $1,000 in fines and was ordered to stay away from the teaching profession for two years as a result of the acrobatic stunt. She's also only allowed to perform commando cartwheels while under the supervision of the next guy in the list...
14. Travis Brauer
Know what's dumb? Committing a misdemeanor while attempting to take up skirt photos in a packed meeting at the capitol. Know what's dumber? Committing a felony while trying to destroy evidence of the misdemeanor.
Travis Brauer, Mary Fallin's creepy former personal assistant, learned this when he "lost his phone at the lake" after OHP requested to look at it as part of an investigation into the alleged up skirt photos incident. Not soon after, Brauer was arrested for felony charges of offering false or fraudulent evidence.
13. Brenton Hager
Brenton's legendary police chase through fields across the rural outskirts of the Oklahoma City metro was dumb, but it was dumb in a heroic, fantasy sort of way. For a while, he was like Oklahoma's Robin Hood, if, of course, Robin Hood had a meth problem and kept all the stuff he stole.
Brenton's second arrest, though, was stupid dumb. Less than two weeks after he bailed out of jail, he was once again arrested for stealing a truck. This time, as opposed to being taken down in an amazing plank taze in a field, he was shacked up in a cheap hotel room in Oklahoma County. We were all disappointed by these dumb actions.
The rumors are just that, rumors, and ranged all over the map. They went from the basic "He cheated on his wife with a staffer" to the absurd "He was caught in a southside motel room smoking weed with Ralph Shortey" to the believable "He led an unsuccessful panty raid on Tess Teague's dorm room."
